On January 3, 1969 the VAL-4 "Black Ponies" were Commissioned at Naval Air Station North Island, California. Operating the OV-10A Bronco, Light Attack Squadron Four was the first Navy squadron of its type. VAL-4 was deployed to Vietnam in March of 1969, where it quickly became an important part of the Brown Water Navy. Operating from Binh Thuy Air Base and Vung Tau Army Airfield in the Mekong Delta, the Black Ponies provided direct support for U.S., Allied and Vietnamese operations until it was deactivated in April 1972.
